, during this presiden presidency. during the last presidency in 2004, when george w. bush was running for re-election, you might remember that one of the ways the republicans tried to kind of game the system for that election, particularly in states where they thought things were going to be close, was they made sure in those states republicans pushed ballot measures for that fall's election that were anti-gay rights. they calculated that anti-gay marriage sentiment was so strong that it would drive conservative voters to the polls in really high numbers and while those conservative voters were there at the polls to vote against the gay, those voters, of course, could also be reliably counted on to vote for george w. bush as well. there were 11 anti-gay ballot measures sharing the ballot with george w. bush that year in 1 1 states and the anti-gay side won in every single one of those states. george w. bush won as well in 9 of those 11 states and, of course, he won the presidency. in that election and for years before and after, every single time that marriage rights for same-sex coup

. >>> coming up, the ghost of george w. bush. chronic lies and deceptions of the bush administration in iraq have undermined the case for action in syria. don't you think? as one british member of parliament put it, the well has been poisoned. too many crying wolf out there. >>> also the obama/clinton alliance. bill clinton is making a big speech next week at his library pushing the affordable care act. who is the big dog trying to help? the current president or possible future one? >>> plus, segregation laws are a thing of the past. yeah. but we have often self-segregated ourselves into black neighborhoods and white neighborhoods. tonight, the challenges and culture shock for the african-american youngster when he leaves his neighborhood for college. >>> finally, let me finish with the usual suspects pushing this war in syria. and this is "hardball." the place for politics. i think farmers care more about the land than probably anyone else. we've had this farm for 30 years. we raise black and red angus cattle. we also produce natural gas. that's how we make our living and that's how we can

. this must be fixed. this is a problem that even former president george w. bush was concerned about in his first address to a joint congress. >> earlier today i asked john ashcroft, the attorney general, to develop specific recommendations to end racial profiling. it's wrong and we will end it in america. in so doing we will not hinder the work of our nation's brave police officers. they protect us every day. often at great risk. but by stopping -- [ applause ] but by stopping the abuses of a few, we will add to the public confidence our police officers earn and deserve. >> heeding the president's call for action, michigan congressman john conyers helped sponsor the end racial profiling act back in 2001. the act, though, never made it out of committee. for vote on the house floor. since 2001, congressman conyers has been reintroducing the same bill each and every year. and each and every year, the same thing happens. here he is earlier this week. >> i want to make one thing clear. we were working on the reintroduction before the trayvon martin tragedy. and the george zimmerman acquittal. s

to be simple. look at how george w. bush became president. it was the overpowering incentive in the republican party was in win. in the 1990s they lost. the government shutdown in 1995. they lost when clinton won again. they lost on impeachment. they say, we have to find a way to win an election. you have george w. bush and compassionate conservatism. it's a totally different game. they said compassionate conservative was big government conservatism and spoiled the good name of conservatism and gave us barack obama. you have two sort of competing things, two sort of complementary things going on in the conservative movement. one is standard. beat the other party's guy. beat barack obama. the other one is there's no such thing in a post-bush world of being too pure in the republican party. what that exactly means from a policy and agenda standpoint, i don't know, nobody's articulated yet. there's this constant battle now, constant reinforcement for people who seek out the most pure position, most pure label and you can gain stature, prominence and make a lot of money on the conservative side by

worried about presidents who act unilaterally and he's doing it again just like george bush did. we made george bush come back to the congress and get a vote before we went into iraq. the congress, i think, made a mistake in doing it, but at least we all took responsibility for what happened. in this one, the president is taking it all on himself. what's the hurry and what is the goal? what are you expecting to be the goal that we accomplish day two after we've shot in 50 tomahawk missiles? when we have taken out assad? is that the goal? or is it take out the syrian army? or is it to lay the country waste to make rubble? what is it we are intending to get out of this? >> you clearly want a vote on this, and some of our viewers have been tweeting about this and there's a lot of consternation, obviously, as we stand now in the precipice of what looks like another war in the middle eve. one viewer writing into me, the president needs a vote here if for no other reason to have cover for what happens afterwards. do you think there will be political recriminations after the fact if the preside

feels like this is an echo of the iraq war issue under president george w. bush. he says "in a way, yes. then, too, the americans and their allies asked for inspections. then, too, they said, forget it. we have enough evidence on our own to act. we are the world police." only last march" he says "the west was satisfied with inspections concerning the use of chemical weapons. why can't they wait again now? in one month when you have accurate tissue samples, we will know for sure exactly what kind of chemical weapons have been used and who possesses such weapons." he's asked of the difference between president obama on this issue and the lead-up to the iraq war. hans blix said president obama some time ago talked about international legality. i was heartened by that. i feel the politics of the moment are pushing him in a direction we've seen before in the united states." "if the aim is to stop the breach of international law and to keep the lid on others with chemical weapons, military action without first waiting for the u.n. inspector report is not the way to go about it." if you have e

the financial crisis happened at the end of the george bush sww. bush president and the economy went down the toilet across country, there were a million manifestations that were material, for individual families, people who lost their jobs, us as a country. in 2008, our economic growth rate was negative 8.3%. that was the negative growth rate that quarter for the whole country. one of the weirdly unsettling manifestations of that very dark time in our recent history was when some towns and some counties and some states decided they had to unpave themselves. do you remember this when we decided that the united states of america could no longer afford paved roads? 38 counties in michigan started grinding their paved roads, their asphalt roads into gravel because they could not afford to keep them paved. in south dakota, 100 miles of afault road ground into gravel. in ohio, they couldn't afford to grind down their roads. ohio counties made an official decision to let their paved streets erode into unpaved streets. this started happening in 2009 when the economy was still just spiraling down

power. that raw capacity to this fight we want the government to win against terrorists. george w. bush encapsulated this perfectly when the first wiretapping was reported in 2005 when he basically said, you know what, if you're not al qaeda, you've got nothing to worry about. this sort of thing cuts the other direction too, though. what if the american people haven't much cared about or maybe have even approved of something the government was doing because we thought it was for fighting terrorism but instead it's not. something that everybody -- maybe a little squeamish about but basically okay with because it's supposedly only for use against bad guys in foreign countries. guys like this, right? turns out instead it's being used by local american cops for regular old crime for stuff done by americans that has nothing to do with wacky religious ideology. what if powers of the u.s. government that had some agent somewhere listening into this conversation with the threats to the u.s. embassies. what if that same power has the same agents also listening in on your phone calls. finding out

military force to respond to syria's alleged chemical weapons use, it would be an echo of what george w. bush did ten years ago when our government said it was sure, but it was wrong, and the resulting war without u.n. approval was one of america's greatest foreign policy mistakes ever, if not the greatest foreign policy mistake ever. so now here we are. the drum beat in washington today says that there is going to be an american or an american and allied military hit of some kind against sere wra. what will that do? what choices does president obama have in terms of how to respond if we does want to respond militarily or otherwise? does congress get a say in the matter? and what happens if we are wrong about this? our government's track record on being wrong about chemical weapons is long. it spans multiple administrations for multiple reasons. if the use of chemical weapons really is going to be a real redline in the world that demands a response when it happens, why is the world waiting for our government to make up our government's own mind about whether this happened? instead of wa
